Learn how to draw a bunny face, and then turn it into a line drawing project. Lots of skinny lines will add a kind of furry texture.
There must be an artist somewhere who originated this look of a furry bunny line drawing, as many variations have been all over Pinterest for awhile now. It is a great idea, having the black and white drawing on the colored background, but the examples I saw were either to complex or way too simple. As in, coloring page simple.
Who needs that when the basic bunny head is really pretty easy to draw? And if students then lightly plan some rows with a pencil, lots of skinny marker lines can be added in an organized way.
Lastly, cut him out, leaving a bit of a white edge, glue to a sheet of your favorite color of paper and you have fun drawing with lots of contrast too. (Psst, one of the Principles of Design!)

- Drawing Paper. Don’t substitute it with copy paper or construction paper. The surface will get fuzzy, erasing might cause holes, and the colors will generally not look as bright.
- Pencil. The Ticonderoga brand are the most reliable, make nice dark lines when you need them, and are the easiest to erase. Buying the pre-sharpened ones will save busy teachers a lot of time.
- Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a much better job than just the pencil tip erasers, especially when erasing leftover pencil lines after tracing.
- Black Sharpie Marker. These fine point permanent markers make nice black lines, have a good tip for coloring, and never bleed when they get wet. Use them in areas with good ventilation and add extra paper underneath for table protection.
- Prang Crayons. These are a bit softer than other crayons so they sometimes look like oil pastels. They also have a some nice brown shades that Crayola does not have in the smaller boxes.
- Crayola Crayons. The reliable brand that always works well. The 24 pack has some of my favorite golden orange and yellow colors, and seem a bit richer than ones Prang has.
Time needed: 1 hour.
